You just pick the smartphone and take some photos!
There are several pieces of advice for making photos for claim goals, namely:
1) Photograph the outside of the container clearing showing the container number on the side panel and door.
2) Photograph all damage to the container: holes, dents, damaged door gaskets, extreme rust, and visible water lines on the exterior of the container due to submersion.
Your cargo is transported by ship at sea. Just imagine this extreme force and possible danger for your cargo.
